The Colorado Mammoth have re-signed forward and former 2012 NLL Rookie of the Year Adam Jones to a franchise-record five-year contract, pending league approval.

“Adam’s already a star, and one of the best young talents in the National Lacrosse League,” said Mammoth president and general manager Steve Govett, who negotiated the deal.

Jones has 62 goals in two seasons, and is two points shy of 150 for his career. In 2013, he finished tied for fifth in the league with 12 power-play goals, and his 33 total goals were tied for eighth. The Owen Sound, Ontario native had 12 multi-goal games, and set single-game career-highs in goals (5) and points (8) in the 2013 regular-season finale. In two career playoff appearances, the 24-year-old has seven goals and an assist to his credit.

Jones led all rookies in assists (47) and points (76) in 2012. Both stats, as well as his goal total (29), were franchise records for a first-year player.

The Mammoth now have a league-high 21 players under contract including former 2012 NLL MVP John Grant, Jr. who recently opened the free agency period by signing a four-year deal.
